Book: Sonia Sotomayor: A Judge Grows in the Bronx / Sonia Sotomayor: la juez que creció en el Bronx by Jonah Winter
Art: For the Record: Celebrating Art by Women Exhibition
Summary: Before Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor took her seat in our nation's highest court, she was just a little girl in the South Bronx. Justice Sotomayor didn't have a lot growing up, but she had what she needed -- her mother's love, a will to learn, and her own determination. With bravery she became the person she wanted to be. With hard work she succeeded. With little sunlight and only a modest plot from which to grow, Justice Sotomayor bloomed for the whole world to see.
